Here is one more look at the tent, this time under the stars. I didn't see the meteor when I was taking the 30 second exposure because I was trying to light the tent with a flashlight. How neat to see it later.
I took two different turns (on different nights) wandering about trying my hand at star photos. It's pretty dark out there in the country, and the fact that we were having moonless nights, also helped.
I know very little about the stars, but I do know the Big Dipper. It stands out so clearly every time I visit. I always know exactly where to look for it.
You can see some of the lights from the cottage catching the edge of the trees. You can also see a bit of the Milky Way.
An absolute plethora of stars.
Here's another with a bit of light painting on the barn.
Shortly after taking that photo I began to wend my way to take a similar photo of the planer mill. It was then that I heard the wild yipping of a pack of coyotes coming from the direction in which I was walking. I could tell they were a little way away, but the image of a pack of coyotes hurtling my way caused me to do an about fact and head back to the safety of cottage. It was a good thing, not because any coyotes appeared but because I then took the first shot of this post and caught that meteor.
Note: you can see the photos a little bigger is you click on you and then advance thru the frames.
